This is a recipe from my ABM's manual. Be advised that this is more of a savory bread than a sweet bread, but it is very delish! A very nice bread to serve as a side to soups or to make into french toast!!! Make sure you cook it on the sweet bread cycle and light crust! Recipe is for a 1 lb loaf
I love this recipe. The oats give it a really good taste, and I use wheat flour for some wheat taste. If you don't enjoy wheat flour, you can use all white flour and it is still delicious. I use my bread maker to make the dough, then form it into a loaf. You don't have to use a bread machine, I've done it by hand; the machine just makes it quicker with kids in the kitchen under my feet.
Preparation time includes the bread machine dough cycle, mine is about one hour.
I combined two of my favorite bread maker recipes and came up with this. It comes out easy to slice and is the perfect texture for sandwiches. Sometimes I substitute the milk for pineapple juice when I want snacking bread or for french toast.
The pesto and olive give the focaccia a very robust flavor. As a variation, omit the pesto and brush dough with olive oil, then sprinkle with snipped fresh basil and finely shredded parmesan cheese. This comes from my Better Homes and Garden Bread Machine Book.
